Soccer-Who’s hot in Europe for Kenya


Kenyans players plying their trade in leagues around Europe impressed over the weekend ahead of the final African Cup of Nations qualifier against Uganda Cranes.


Kenyan’s skipper Dennis Oliech side Auxerre drew 1-1 all with St. Etienne and the striker who had scored a fantastic hatrick the previous weekend against Sochaux played the entire match.


Midfielder MacDonald Mariga started his fifth straight game as his side Real Sociedad lost 1-2 to Athletico Bilbao. The result saw his team drop to 11th on the log with seven points.


Mariga’s younger brother Victor Mugubi Wanyama made his full league debut for the Hoops in the 2-0 loss to Hearts.

Mugubi who played the entire match faced his Ugandan opponent in the upcoming African cup of Nations qualifier David Obua who came off the bench for Hearts in the last seven minutes.
